I tested FFVIII on V2.6.7 via Midboot and it worked for 5 hours with no crash.
Because we don't know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. Yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, an afternoon that is so deeply a part of your being that you can't even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four, five times more, perhaps not even that.

Sorry, unfamiliar with midboot, am using 2.6.7 though

Edit: Found it, testing now.

Edit: Battles seem to work now, had no idea that midboot was an option. Thanks guys.

It would be neat if you could add [FIXED 2.6.7 Midboot] to the threads title.
That way, people in the future with the same problem that find this thread can know what to search for in the thread.
